Over the coming days and weeks here at Inside the Senate, I'll be passing along various statistical breakdowns of some of your favourite Senators based on their 2013-14 seasons. While finishing five points out of a playoff position meant the season did not go according to plan, the team itself and, on an individual level, a number of its members did a lot of good over the course of 82 games. It simply just didn't pan out.

As hockey fans and, more broadly, fans of any sport will tell you, the game is cruel. The Senators were conceivably worthy of a better fate last season and with the benefit of a few bounces here or there very easily could have made it into the dance. Alas, hindsight is just that.

Before we dive into a player-by-player look at how the Senators fared last year, I thought it would be of some value to do an overview of the stats we will be profiling. Let's begin...

Sens TV sat down with a handful of Senators prospects during development camp to give fans a chance to get to know them a little bit better. Up next in this series is Ben Harpur who is currently with Team Canada at their World Junior Development Camp in Montreal.

Harpur was a fourth-round selection by the Senators in the 2013 Draft out of the Guelph Storm program. A big-bodied shut-down defenceman, Harpur played a key role on the blueline for the OHL Champion and Memorial Cup finalist Storm, earning an invite to the aforementioned Hockey Canada camp in the process.

As things stand, Harpur will likely return to the Storm for the 2014-15 season and shoulder a heavy load for them on the blueline.

With all that said, here's Sens TV with Ben Harpur.
